My love of knitting began more years ago than I care to remember. My mother taught me to knit and purl at a young age and before long I was completely hooked, churning out holey scarves until I had perfected the art of picking up stitches and moving on to more complicated patterns! Not long after that the crochet craze arrived and many of the girls at my school were busy at break time crocheting brightly coloured ponchos – it was such fun seeing who could finish theirs first!
A few years and two children later I opened my own shop and couldn’t knit batwing sweaters fast enough! The birth of my third child meant a few years away and then a change of direction working in the corporate world, but it was during that time, whilst on a weekend break in Arundel that I happened across Rowan Big Wool, huge needles and loved the speed at which I could knit fashionable sweaters and accessories.
My love of knitting returned in earnest and artofyarn was born. That was over 10 years ago and I have been selling on the internet ever since. Over the years business has grown and it is now a family affair with my partner involved with managing the website and our son checking the arrival of stock and making sure orders are dispatched as fast as possible:)
I hope you like our website and choice of stock, but if there's something you would like, but can’t see, I am always happy to try and source, so please feel free to ask!
We look forward to being of service.
Happy knitting & crocheting!
Trish, Steve & Ryan
